Good News for People Who Like Bad News

BY Peter Suderman

When it comes to the economy, no one likes bad news—no one, that is, except for liberal politicians. Why? Because liberals rely on bad news to sell their policies of choice. In fact, their whole approach to the economy is almost entirely predicated on it. From health care to social security to global warming, their number one tactic is to appeal to anxiety, fear, and worry. It's in their political interests to convince the public that things are bad, very bad—and probably going to get worse.

Pure Political Payoff

It's not exactly a secret that Democrats are in the pocket of the labor movement.   Despite the country's shrinking union membership, labor remains a potent force in electoral politics -- and its support goes almost exclusively to Democrats.  USA Today's got a handy report on how their influence plays out now that Democrats control Congress:

More on SCHIP

As I mentioned in a previous post today, Bush has threatened to veto the multi-billion dollar expansions being proposed to SCHIP.  One of the things that proponents of expanding the program really want to do is dramatically increase the income level of those who qualify, so that, in New York, families making 400% of the poverty level, or $82,000 a year, would qualify for taxpayer-funded health insurance.  It's a pretty blatant example of the Left's "sneaky sequentialist" approach to expanding government-funded health insurance rolls.

Documenting Entrepreneurship

Acton Media, a division of the wonderful free-market think tank, the Acton Institute, has produced a new documentary, The Call of the Entrepreneur, which I've heard nothing but good things about.

Cut What?

Looks like members of Congress are squabbling over Medicare cuts, and while those might normally might be worth wholeheartedly supporting (anything that gets the government out of the doctor business is usually a good idea), in this case, it's just a sideshow.  The argument is over whether to include Medicare cuts in the SCHIP children's health-care bill.  Versions have passed in both the House and the Senate, and the bill is currently in conference.  Both versions contain massive expansions of government health-care -- the House would add a total $75 billion in additional spending; the Senate would add about $35 billion.

American Cancer Society vs. Cancer Patients

In today's New York Post, Cato's Michael Tanner takes on the American Cancer Society's recent announcement that it will spend its entire ad budget for a year plugging government health care:

Legislating Health?

Look, there's no arguing that plenty of people in the U.S. and elsewhere could and probably should eat better, but there's no reason we need the government limiting business licenses for fast food companies. Unfortunately, that's what city officials in L.A. are considering:

Economic Man

This New York Times story about how familiar economic principles show up in the open ended virtual world of Second Life seems slightly critical. But it's still pretty interesting to see how, any time there's a relatively free human society in which there's the possibility of doing work and producing goods or services, economic basics like property rights and supply and demand almost always tend to come into play.
